Intimate view of the performance stage at Radar Festival.




Radar Festival, an award-winning celebration of progressive rock and metal, has quickly established itself as a pivotal event in the UK's music scene. Launched in 2021 and already crowned as the "Best New Festival" at the UK Festival Awards in 2022, this Manchester-based festival is hosted at the iconic O2 Victoria Warehouse, situated on the banks of the Bridgewater Canal in Old Trafford.

More than just a live music event, Radar champions the future of progressive music, attracting a youthful audience eager for fresh sounds. This year, attendees can look forward to a series of masterclasses from renowned bands and artists. These sessions, requiring separate tickets, are designed to enrich and educate.

Alongside the music, the festival promises a diverse range of food options catering to various dietary needs. Note: the venue restricts entry to those aged 14 and above.
